A Happy Ending for For Freds Franks

A couple of months ago I wrote of a guy who had his Hot Dog Cart stolen, Frank Martucci owner of Fred’s Franks in Orangeburg, N.Y. Thugs stole his only means of supporting his family; his hot dog-cart. In the update  Mr. Martucci received a loaner cart from a business owner in his local community.

Today Fred Martucci celebrates the grand reopening of Fred’s Franks on Route 303, and the community who supported him through the last few difficult months.  Fred’s insurance company replaced his stolen trailer with a new one. 

“The trailer really is beautiful,” he said. “I was very blessed to find it, but I was also blessed to have all of this support from the people.”

Fred’s first hot dog-cart was  10 foot by 7 foot. His new trailer is 2 foot longer and has an extra umbrella to shield customers from the elements. The new shade of yellow makes him visible from a few hundred feet in any direction.

“People tell me it just pops out at them from a distance,” Martucci said.

Fred’s Franks has never had a grand opening so today is his grand re-opening.

Police are still looking for the criminals who stole the original Fred Franks hot dog-cart back in september, but at least Fred is back to his location and selling hot dogs. What a great ending and just in time for Christmas.

We do Hot dog Catering  in Southern California. Look us up sometime.
